The eagerly anticipated companion to David Levithan’s New York Times bestseller Every Day
In this enthralling companion to his New York Times bestseller Every Day, David Levithan (co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green) tells Rhiannon’s side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about love and how it can change you.
Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.
Until the morning everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day—a perfect day Justin doesn’t remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person . . . wasn’t Justin at all.
Was it as good as Every Day? Not entirely, but I really enjoyed reading the story in Rhiannon's point of view. And the ending made me so very hopeful!
The story was pretty much the same of course, but this time we lived everything through Rhiannon's eyes. You'd think things would get repetitive but it really wasn't. It had a fresh and new feel to the story.
So, although Another Day wasn't as good as Every Day, David Levithan still surprised me with this book. It was better than I expected and once again the story really touched me. Especially the ending. I loved it!
